About

Fargesia scabrida is a fantastic bamboos with violet-blue culms and orange coloured culm sheaths. It's a clumping Bamboo, however it is a bit more open in habit than most fargesia.

Planting and Care

Plant with the addition of some organic matter and water in well. Do not let the plant dry out in the first six months, and after this if it's in the ground it should look after itself. Pots of bamboo will continue to need watering. The best food a bamboo can have is its own dead leaves and culm sheaths so leave them to mulch the base of the plant.

Planting position

Fargesia scabrida is best grown in semi shade, but is happy in full sun.

Soil

Any reasonable soil is ok, add organic matter to help the bamboo establish.

Fargesia scabrida is a clump forming bamboo, it is suited to being grown in a pot.  Use a good loam-based compost, don't let it dry out and feed regularly.

Height and Spread

This Bamboo can reach 10ft in height, it is clump forming and should spread about 2m in ten years.
